    I noticed a lot of so so reviews and was wary until I read a professional review praising it’s easy set up. I decided to go for it and boy am I glad I did. I happen to be a novice setting up PC related stuff but this router was cake to set up. Be forwarned; however, my intention was to simply set up wireless with encryption and nothing else. I had no desire to set up a full blown network with file and printer sharing. I simply wanted encrypted wireless for my xp windows pc and vista windows laptop in the house. I figure I can print stuff by using the pc with the printer or using a flash drive so I had no desire in oversteaping my technical boundries.

    That being said… it was as simple as putting the disk in, following directions printing the encryption code and connecting the router. Easy as cake! I had more trouble configuring the recieving vista windows laptop and xp windows pc! Which wasn’t that hard either. The router is connected to my windows vista desktop and my windows vista laptop and seperate xp windows desktop are recieving the signal. It was as easy as plugging in the code to the recieving laptop and pc.

    The signal is always strong and no breaks in three weeks of constant use. Despite other comments, the signal strength is awesome even with the unit under a shelf. Unless you live in a 25 room mansion or set up the network wrong… you should have no problems. I have absolutely no complaints. The cherry on top is how awesome this router looks and with no antenna! You could easly hide this under a shelf but why would you want to! It’s beautiful and you could use it as decoration! I admit, it is pricey but well worth the money in the headaches you will save setting it up and the aesthetic factor. Highly recommended especially for novices who simply want wireless in their house.

    For years, we have been happy users of a Netgear MR314 wireless router. But it didn’t reach the farthest corner of our home. In looking at various routers, I found many mixed reviews for the newer Netgear routers, so decided to try the Linksys WRT160N. We use almost nothing but Macs in our home.

    Setup: Forget the included CD that comes with this router, it is Windows only. It does have the User Guide as a PDF buried in one of the folders. But it is not much help.

    Instead, just turn on the router, look for the wireless signal (or plug in directly using an ethernet cable), then use FireFox – the current Safari doesn’t work and any changes cause a “server unexpectedly dropped connection” error.

    Type: 192.168.1.1 in the browser, then user name “linksys” and password “admin” to get the web based setup menus.

    From there, if you have any questions, click on the “Help” link for the individual pages. The help there is much better than in the User Guide.

    This router does reach the far corner of our house, and is able to use WPA, etc.

    I would have given the router 5 stars if the documentation had been better, and if the Mac had been included. (Even though it’s really really simple to set up the Mac for wireless, it’s still nice to be recognized.)

    FINALLY! A router that fixes all of the problems I was having. My old router, a D-Link Draft N had trouble connecting wirelessly with my Dell Laptop and my MacBook Pro. (Draft-N routhers don’t all conform to the same standards.) It did work with my iMac wirelessly and it did OK with my wired connections.

    So, I decided to tey an Apple Airport Extreme. It worked with all my wireless devices, but supprisingly did not do well passing HD TV Shows from my Media Center PC to my Xbox 360 over a wire!

    So, after much research I decided to try this Linksys. Since it just hit the market, I figured it would have better Draft-N support.

    So, with minimal configuration, this routher works with ALL my devices:

    (I have it setup with WPA/WPA2 Wireless security.)

    MacBook Pro (Draft-N Wireless)
    Dell Vostro Laptop (Draft-N)
    Apple iMAc (Draft-N)
    Apple iPod Touch (Whatever wireless it uses…)
    AppleTV (Wireless)
    Nintendo Wii (Wireless)
    2 Wired Windows PCs
    Playstation 3 (Wired)
    Xbox 360 (Wired)

    Plus it has no trouble passing the HD TV shows from my Windows Media Center PC to my Xbox360.
